house-at-christmasWith the onset of the festive season, Santa Claus and jingle bells are almost knocking at the door. And the best way to celebrate this festival is to bring alive the joyful spirit of Christmas right in your home. With some thoughtful efforts exploit your creativity to make your visitors cherish this joyous Christmas spirit. The precise decoration is the main thing that gives life and colour to your house and makes your guests feel contented. However, if you lack Christmas decorating ideas, you have landed on the right page as I can suggest a few different ideas to make this Christmas an impressive one.
Set an inviting entrance tone:

Remove those clutters and make a functional entrance. You can accent your white door with bright coloured garlands and wreath. Add wide red-ribbons to complete the Christmas look with twinkling lights that will allow the door and the décor to be seen from the street. To make it pleasant, provide a coat tree and umbrella holder. If you wish to greet your guests make an arrangement with seasonal Paperwhite, juniper, heather or moss in a planter and hang it on your front door. To make it more pleasant, provide a coat tree and umbrella holder as soon as the guests enter your house. Mirrors are always welcome especially for a last minute preening. Hallway tables or chests can be quite useful surfaces for the guests to place their belongings.

Make a focal point:

Decide on a focal point in your room to anchor it. It could be the fireplace, Christmas tree or mantel that you choose. After you decide the focal point go all out to make it special. If you are choosing the fireplace, you can arrange a group of festive lanterns and consider using Flameless candles as worry-free alternative to regular pillars.

Your focal point should also have a stunning centrepiece adorned with red roses bounded by white tallow berries in silver vases. This is designed to resemble birch bark. If this is not enough, you can pleat bits of boxwood garland and twigs of berries round the base of the vases. This will definitely add Votive to the texture of the look.Traditional Christmas flowers can provide a better feel of the festival. A better alternative is to float flowers and petals in a large crystal or glass bowl.

Place a group of pillar candles wrapped with strands of thread and arrange them in large wooden bowl filled with dry fruits, black-eyed peas, artichokes or may be pomegranates if you wish. You can place this bowl near any besides table. You can buy besides tables online in case you need one for your Christmas. Also do not forget the outdoor patio. Add cheer to your patio space with wreaths, candles and season flowers to draw the attention of your guests.

Light the way:

A Christmas party is incomplete without lighting. It is an integral part of the entire setting. The layered lighting source will make your home feel warmer and cosier instantly. Also think about dimming your home lights with candles, string lights and a cheery fireplace to make your decoration stand out. Wind the string lights around a column or post with garlands and Christmas greenery. This will add a celebratory touch to your merry-making ambience.

When it comes to lights, it plays a significant role in embellishing the Christmas tree. Create an opulent feel by ornamenting your Christmas tree with different colour schemes of gold, silver and bronze. Use strands of small electric bulbs, glow stars to illuminate the tree. You may choose to use a lot of ribbons as decoration. Hang some vintage glass ornaments to your decoration to give it a rich look.

Set up place to enjoy food:

Unless you plan for a grand sit down dinner, the Christmas party remains incomplete. While you place the basic cutlery, make your own custom napkin rings by spray painting cedar roses and tie them with wide red-ribbon. To add an extra flourish, tuck in a twig of boxwood. Set out food for guests on the dining table and let them help themselves. It is also a good idea to spread bowls of snacks around the conversation area you have set up. Coffee tables, accent tables or nesting tables are handy to arrange for drinks and food. Scatter these small tables all round those places that have seating preparation.

While setting up the dinning place, do not forget to prepare the kitchen. Dress up pendant lights in the kitchen decorated with garlands. If you have an open floor plan there's nothing like it. The plan keeps the cook being cut off from the festivities right from the Christmas morning.

Most importantly, plan the entire decoration to match with your existing décor even if that means using white or beige so that the setup does not look unusual.
